I need to send invites to people in different time zone from where I am as
the meetings will take place in the recipients time zone. how do I do it?
Do I need to just i.e., meeting at 10am Tokyo time should be sent from US
Eastern time zone showing 1am?

If Tokyo is nine hours ahead of Eastern time, then yes. It can be easer if
you add an extra time zone to your calendar.

Kathy,

To add to Brian's post, you really don't need to do anything as Outloo
encodes time and dates as an offset to UTC (Universal Time Coordinate)
We can get really crazy explaining this, but essentially all you nee
to know is that Outlook will display the time and date of the meetin
request to the invitee in their time relative to the time in which yo
set the meeting (offset). For example, if your time zone is Easter
Time and you send a meeting invite for 9am to me (I'm in Centra
Time), the meeting will appear as 8am Central Time within my copy o
Outlook.

It is important to note that the correct display time will depend o
everyone having the correct time zone setting on their PC. Also, kee
in mind Daylight Saving Time is accounted for as well.

Hope this helps
